Graduate Education and Training in Health Psychology
Few fields of study in psychology have experienced as explosive a growth of interest during the past decade as health psychology. Demonstration of the interest in this emergent field can be found on a variety of fronts—in the growth of discipline-specific journals, in the award of increasing amounts of federal and private monies for health psychology research, and in the establishment of graduate programs that attempt to train students in the expanding field. It is this last area of development of this subdiscipline that is the primary focus of the present chapter.
